It can’t really be called untouched or pristine anymore, I guess; tourists comes in droves to ravage her beauty every summer. A half a century ago, it was one of the most glorious hill stations in the country with a few stone houses. Today, it is a town crammed with concrete hotels with no of sustainable tourism. The Manali tourism industry is brimming and overflowing, but how much more can it take? If you’re not the touristy types, then discover the city in your own time. Don’t even bother with the Manali holiday packages. For starters, go in the winter months; yes, it’s colder but hey, it’s totally worth it to miss the crowds.

 The Rohtang pass is one of the most popular places to see in Manali; but how many of us actually know that Rohtang literally means ‘pile of corpses’. It was named so after the number of people dying in bad weather trying to cross the pass which is at an altitude of 3,978 m or 13,051 feet. The pass is only open from May to November. It is not particularly high or difficult to cross on foot by Himalayan standards, but it has a well-deserved reputation for being dangerous because of unpredictable snowstorms and blizzards.

And then we came in with our amazing technology and innovation and dug a hole through the mountain. So now, it takes about 30 minutes through the Rohtang tunnel as compared to the 6 hours to ascend, negotiate and descend the pass. With a budget of $320 million for 8.5 kms of tunnel, it will be one of the longest in the country when completed. It will be much safer and faster for the Indian government’s military operations. Shielded from heavy snowfall and blizzards, the tunnel will be open throughout the year linking to Keylong, Lahaul and Spiti and Leh in Ladakh.

Spend time in Old Manali and the hippie villages nearby for a true sense of the original mountain paradise. Smoke some Malana cream if you can get your hands on it. It is the world renowned hashish from the village of Malana. Little is produced in Malana besides cannabis. This does not mean that it’s a free reign. Of course you will get arrested by the police if you are found in possession. We do not support any form of drug use or abuse!
 

Manali's surrounding scenery is its main asset. Set amidst the Himalayas and River Beas, the adjacent countryside is truly breathtaking. But go knowing that Manali is a nothing more than a base to explore the surrounding areas.

Apart from using Manali as a base to explore its surroundings, the city itself does not have a lot to offer if you are the type of traveller who enjoys culture, shopping, good cafes and restaurants, and so on. The temples in Manali can all be seen in half a day and after that you'll be hard pressed to find activities in town to occupy yourself. Old Manali is overrun with hippies who come mainly to smoke hash (which you'll find growing all over Manali). If this isn't your idea of fun, you won't find much that is redeeming about it.

Manali proper isn't much better; the main thoroughfare - the Mall - is a pedestrianised shopping street that has shops and restaurants of all sorts. But again, the quality of what is on offer is mediocre at best. Don't imagine a lively Indian bazaar where you'll find gorgeous local handicrafts and clothing - this is not what the Mall offers. It's more a hodgepodge of dollar store trinkets.

In short, Manali caters to two types of tourists: stoners and adventure seekers. If you fall into one of these two categories, you might love Manali. If you don't, go knowing that Manali itself is not the reason to visit - the surrounding countryside is the only thing worth seeing, and Manali is only a base to explore that.

Hotels in Manali are nothing near 4 or 5 star quality, no matter what ratings they advertise. Generally, you will be hard pressed to find a hotel up to your standards if you are used to staying at 4 stars and above. Do not expect hotels to be clean, much less offer any amenities. You could also try the various home stays available in Manali or around Manali area. You could book these through internet. They come with kitchen and other amenities.
